  1. A Cost-Effective Analytical Technology for Identification and Measurement of Greenhouse Gases

    SBC: Lenterra, Inc.            Topic: 47

    This project will develop a cost-effective analytical technology platform for identifying and measuring concentrations of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide and trace greenhouse gas constituents such as carbon monoxide. The proposed analytical platform is based on Penning Ionization Electron Spectroscopy (PIES) in plasma. PIES technology relies on a simple analog ...

  2. A New Sorbent for Removal of Mercury from Flue Gas: A Lower Cost Alternative to Activated Carbon-REVISED

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 21

    The cost of reducing mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants is an impediment to the implementation of new mercury emission standards, particularly in older power plants. The use of a sorbent to capture mercury from the flue gas is considered to be the most effective approach, but issues pertaining to secondary emissions and the degradation of the fly-ash byproduct (which results from entr ...

  3. Analytic and Computational Study of the Adiabatic Compression of Simply Connected Magnetized Targets

    SBC: Woodruff Scientific, Inc.            Topic: 53

    Several critical issues stand in the development path of a magnetized target fusion scheme to a working reactor. Important ones are the limit imposed by liner dwell time, and the requirement for symmetry in high convergences. The usual compression schemes tend to require a lot of energy and large chambers. During Phase I we completed computational and analytic studies of the compression and accele ...

  5. Controlled-porosity ceramic materials for high temperature downhole applications

    SBC: Olympic Research, Inc.            Topic: 16a

    Development of high performance downhole components and materials is necessary to enable geothermal exploration and production capabilities in high pressure and high temperature applications. Conventional well materials are poorly suited for corrosive environments. Steel casing, screens, and other wellbore components are susceptible to corrosion in extreme geothermal conditions. An ideal replaceme ...

  6. Dynamic NMR Logging Technologies for High-Resolution Measurement of Hydrogeologic Properties and Soil Response

    SBC: Vista Clara Inc.            Topic: 19b

    This proposal addresses the challenge of measuring the hydrogeologic response of geologic formations in-situ and at high-resolution to determine flow and storage parameters governing groundwater availability, contaminant fate, and other dynamic subsurface processes. How this problem is being addressed: We will develop direct-push and borehole instrumentation and methods for efficiently acquiring h ...

  7. Enhanced Electronic Interconnects using ZTACH ACA:No Pressure, Low-Temperature, Self-Assembly Material Process

    SBC: Sunray Scientific LLC            Topic: 27e

    Upcoming HEP projects require physical and electrical bonds between opposite points of thin parallel circuit faces which areless than 50 microns in pitch, but current methods, such as bump-soldering and anisotropic conductive adhesives (ACA) and films (ACF) cannot reach these resolution limits and furthermore require heat and pressure that damage delicate circuitry. SunRay ZTACH™ is an anisotrop ...

  8. Fast fingerprinting & detection of materials using portable / hand-held devices and high performance computing for use in manufacturing and supply chain applications.

    SBC: OPTIMAL SOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: 20d

    Material analysis is critical to enable the production of safe and quality goods and today companies use cumbersome, time-consuming, and error-prone methods to analyze materials using expensive analytical laboratories. Companies have a pressing need to measure material properties (like chemical composition and physical properties) throughout their supply chains. This project addresses DOE’s inte ...

  9. High Performance Lossy Dielectric HOM Absorbers for SRF Cavities

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 27

    Recently developed high thermal conductivity aluminum nitride (AlN) based lossy dielectrics can replace the toxic beryllia (BeO) based lossy dielectrics as high order mode (HOM) absorbers in superconductor radio frequency (SRF) cavities in linear accelerators and in microwave tubes. AlN-based lossy dielectrics must be joined metallic copper members in these applications. However, lack of suitable ...

  10. High Stability White SOLEDs


    In 2001, lighting was estimated to consume 8.2 quads (approximately 762 TWh), or about 22% of the total electricity generated in the U.S. New, high-efficiency, solid-state light sources, such as organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), are needed to help reduce the ever increasing demand for energy. Potentially, an OLED is an inexpensive and energy saving diffuse source that may compete with conve ...
